5.0 out of 5 stars Jane The Sleuth Gets Better and Better, 3 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Jane and the Prisoner of Wool (Jane Austen Mystery) (Mass Market Paperback)
This, the sixth in Stephanie Barron's brilliant series where Jane Austen the author becomes Jane the sleuth, ably assisted by the dark, roguish Lord Harold Trowbridge in most instances, has a theme of all things nautical, including a lot of the characters.

Staying with her brother Frank, affectionately known as Fly to the family, at the busy port of Southampton for the winter, Jane is drawn into the life of the navy when Fly takes up the defence of a fellow captain and friend accused of murder on the high seas. It quickly becomes apparent that there is much more to this than meets the eye, and the Austen siblings feel honour-bound to discover who is determined to see Captain James Seagrave hang.
In the meantime, Jane is also cajoled into acting as nurse for the French prisoners being held at the less than salubrious building known as Wool House down by the quay, and it is here she meets the man of the title. As the investigation gains momentum and gossip begins to spread between the two naval communities of Southampton and Portsmouth, Jane discovers that the sick surgeon sojourning at Wool House is more than just a pleasing face...

An engaging page-turner from start to finish, even without the presence of the compelling Lord Harold in this adventure, 'The Prisoner of Wool House' is another great read from Barron, with plenty of little clue twists to add to her clever Austen-esque prose.
